Of course, I had no clue as what he was talking about then, but I remembered him all this time. Searching for his album recently, I ran across this book that I didn't know existed.
And what an amazing book it is. In retrospect, I admire him even more for having lived through his nightmare and come out the other side still liking humanity.
Good read for anyone and it also reminds you that, sometimes, little towns are oceans away from law and civilization.
I have also bought so many copies and given away to people.
I met Robert Sadler when he was touring in Minnesota in the 70's (might have been at the same camp meeting as the other reviewer.) I absolutely fell in love with this old gentleman; he was beautiful and full of the love of God - in spite of the hardships of his life. I do remember "Come and Dine" very well, I think it may have been his signature song. Certainly no one could ever come close to singing it with the same heart and soul as Robert Sadler did:
"Come and dine the Master calleth, come and dine... you may feast at Jesus' table all the time! He who fed the multitudes, turned the water into wine... Come and dine the Master calleth, come and dine!"
Robert Sadler died a few years later. He was one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Yes, a movie of his life would be awesome if it could be done, but I don't know if any Hollywood director could adequately portray the depth of grace, the passion for God, the huge heart of forgiveness, the joy in sharing Jesus... How could they ever do justice to who this man truly was?
I highly recommend this book.
